"It always hurts when we have a student who is injured," said FHS Principal Steve Jacoby.
A 16-year old student was hit by a car while trying to cross Martin Luther King Boulevard during lunch time.
Principal Jacoby says anytime a student is hurt during the school day, it is tough.
"We have a responsibility to provide the best education that we can for them, any time that something like this happens, it hurts all of us."
For many, a scenario like this raises the question, should the campus remain open during lunch?
"I like it because I get to leave and go to any fast food restaurant," said FHS student Isaiah Anderson.
"They don't need to close campus, because I like to go out to eat," said FHS student Jakayla Blackburn.
But Principal Jacoby says a decision had already made, even before the accident on Wednesdays, campus will be closed during lunch next year.
He hopes it will help prevent these types of accidents from happening in the future.
Some parents think teens can determine when it is safe to walk.
"I think they'd be responsible enough to make good decisions crossing the road," said parent Jenny Matthews.
But students and parents agree, people still need to be cautious when crossing a busy street like MLK.
"I just think more people should pay attention," said Blackburn.
"I think it's a little bit of both, people paying more attention driving and the students paying more attention," said Anderson.
So with some extra awareness and a closed campus next year, Jacoby hopes this will not happen again.
"It's just always devastating when a student is hurt."
Fayetteville High School is one of the only schools in the area to have an open campus for lunch. Bentonville, Rogers and Springdale all have closed campuses.
But again, starting next year, Fayetteville will also be a closed campus.
The student was listed in fair condition, but has since been released from Washington Regional Medical Center.
